Our Space - 17th EK Guides


JUNE 2024 - Whats Happening!!!

Over the last few months the girls have been ex-

tremely busy with our focus on community and the environment. The Rainbows, Brownies and Guides were all involved in the BIG LITTER PICK on Sunday 28th April. We were joined by Brownies from the Baptist Church, Guides & Rangers from Claremont. We covered a good part of The Village and went up as far as the Dollan Baths and Health Center. This great team effort managed to collect 20 bags of rubbish. The girls and leaders would like to thank members of the public for their words of support and encouragement while we were out and about. We collaborated with South Lanarkshire Council who provided us with pickers and bags. I am delighted to say these have all been returned, so that means we can borrow them again next year. 

Sat 11th May - Brownie trip to Whitelee Windfarm as part of the girls Active Adventure Badge. We all had a fab time with our stomp rocket making workshop being a real hit with everyone. I don't know who was the most competitive but I think some rockets would have gone into space if the launch pads had been outside. We had a bus trip round part of the farm with Mark our lovely driver who stopped the bus so we could all hug a turbine, they are huge. Barn Owl celebrated her birthday at this event receiving hand made cards from all the girls and not forgetting the birthday cake. 

Tues 21st May - 3 new Brownies made their promise and we got the chance to show off our excellent new wooden toad stool. It was made by one of our wonderful church members and is already loved by us all, its a thing of beauty and as one of the Brownies said, “it will last forever!”

Tues 28th May - Rainbows & Brownies have a planned trip to the community garden at Calderglen to learn about growing their own fruit, veg and plants to attract butterflies and bees. The girls will all get takeaway's on the night to grow and nurture at home 

Tues 4th June - we are helping East Mains Community Council to fill the planters in and around the village as part of their plans for The Village in Bloom, all volunteers most welcome.

Tues 11th June - we are hosting our very own Olympic Games for children and parents. This will be our final event this term and we start back at the beginning of September. Oh, I nearly forgot, we are going to camp from Fri 7th to Sun 9th June and we share our highlights from this event in the Sept magazine.

I have attached below a selection of piccies from all these events we hope you enjoy. It would be very remiss of me not to thank all our wonderful leaders for all their time, dedication and support. None of the events mentioned above would be possible without them. To use the phrase ‘there is no I in team’ and this is true of all our wonderful leaders. Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers as we continue in this work with our citizens of the future
